The topic: It’s official!


We now have Blue Shield as insurance provides. Got a robo call about making payment, said to press zero, pressed zero, got a dial tone. Found their phone number on the internet and called back, got everything set up. Yay!

In other news, we got a thing yesterday from HealthNet informing us that they weren't going to pay for the labwork after my colonoscopy (two benign polyps). Wouldn't that be part of cancer screening? $490.00. And our benefit booklet states that we pay 30% for in network tests, 50% for out of network tests. I don't think we should have to pay the full amount. Something to look forward to.

The topic: I got my cards finished!


I got the envelopes and sentiments done yesterday. One envelope was messed up (if the blade is at all dull, there's a definite problem during cutting), but it's for the card for my mother-in-law and I can redo that at anytime. The rest I want to get out into the mail. 

I'm very happy with how they turned out, I'll share photos after I get these sent out.

But it's sure nice to have them all done.

The topic: We had over an inch of rain last weekend


And we're in for more! It's supposed to start tonight. I wonder if Rocky will come in. I'm not worried about him, he navigates the cat doors whether or not they're locked. And he likes the cathouses. Brian put some rubber mats on top of the one under the office window to help it from getting so wet. And that's the house he likes most. Miss Elizabeth has been going outside during the day and laying in the sun, but she didn't even try last week when it was raining. She stayed inside. She'll probably do the same tomorrow and Saturday. 

I'm really looking forward to this. It's part of what is called the "Pineapple Express" since it's bringing up the warm air from Hawaii. I had to laugh, over on Facebook, one of the local news outlets posted about this big storm and a couple of people said it wasn't that big, they remember a really big one. El Nino!  Like that was the name of the storm. Trying to show off how smart they all were. Morons. I posted a link to information about El Nino. Maybe they'll learn something.

I'm looking forward to using an umbrella!

The topic: Spot peed in the bathroom sink last night


And it's looking way better. Hardly any pink at all. Yay! 

I know these infections have to really hurt for these guys. I guess it had been coming on for a few weeks because he's been particularly needy. Wanting to be petted and held, talking to us, staying close to us. 

Funny how they do that. You always hear that cats go off to die. I've never believed that. Since cats instinctually hide their pain, often it's not until it's too late to do anything about it before we notice it. Cats don't go off to die, they're too sick to come home.

Anyway, Spot is on the road to recovery.
